Overall, I really enjoyed the program! I’m very thankful to have been a part of it, and I’d definitely recommend it to serious students. Thank you so much for the valuable opportunity!

I was surprised by how much I LOOKED FORWARD to class every day. Just sign up for it. The earlier the better. This was the best decision I made in my learning of Japanese.
